Taguig City, under the leadership of Mayor Lani Cayetano, conducted a ceremonial unveiling of the Historical Marker for the Manuel L. Quezon Monument at Plaza Quezon, Barangay Santa Ana, on February 16.

The Quezon Monument is the first-ever monument dedicated to President Manuel L. Quezon in the country. The historical marker conferred by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) contains significant information about the second President of the Philippines and the "Father of the National Language."

Mayor Lani expressed gratitude for the establishment of the historical marker. She also assured that the local government would continue to care for the monument and its history.

"The City of Taguig wholeheartedly accepts this recognition and expresses gratitude, with the firm promise to honor his memory and strive to preserve and share, especially with younger generations, his excellence and contribution to our beloved country," said Mayor Lani.

The momentous unveiling ceremony was attended by Dr. Emmanuel Franco Calairo, Director of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP), Dir. Carminda R. Arevalo, Executive Director of the NHCP, officials from Taguig City, and representatives from the Taguig Heritage Society.

Taguig City originally erected the Quezon Monument (Bantayog ni Quezon) to commemorate the first anniversary of the Father of the National Language's founding of the Philippine Commonwealth on November 15, 1936. The monument was inaugurated on February 16, 1937.
